This study was initiated and conducted by the newly established Swedish Development Research Network (SweDev) with support from the Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA). The study has sought to map the Swedish development research community, and to develop a better understanding of the discipline’s current standing as a research field and its connections with policy and practitioners.
